SalesFUSION Marketing Automation Software Delivers Tighter CRM Integration

New Tools Help Midsize and Large Enterprises Better Integrate Sales and Marketing Activities to Nurture Prospects and Grow Revenues

ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/13 -- SalesFUSION, a leading provider of cloud-based marketing automation software, today announced a new version of its software, featuring advanced prospect nurturing, sales enablement and event management tools. SalesFUSION, which has several hundred clients including Hitachi, Coverall, Avanade and Green Giant, helps companies align marketing and sales in the increasingly complex world of online marketing. Companies using SalesFUSION consistently improve lead generation while decreasing campaign management costs. Its SaaS application integrates to leading CRM systems including Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Sage SalesLogix, Salesforce.com and SugarCRM.

The new version of SalesFUSION includes an advanced designer tool for prospect nurturing, which allows users to build nurture marketing campaigns in a visual flow designer that ties sales and marketing actions together into a single integrated solution. This helps marketers by streamlining the entire lead to sales process and engages sales directly in nurture marketing programs through response alerts and lead follow-up task assignment. Another key feature of the release, an online event management wizard, is pre-integrated with both Citrix and WebEx in such a manner that users build their webinars directly inside of SalesFUSION. This affords more control over events, with registration pages, follow up and attendee information automatically appended to the lead records in CRM. Users can create more events faster and ensure sales has the right information to effectively follow up on event leads.

Salespeople benefit from SalesFUSION's new sales enablement tools, including the ability to view prospect call-downs from the CRM system. This allows sales personnel to quickly view lists of hot prospects who have responded to campaigns and other marketing events managed by SalesFUSION. Call-down views work from any of the five CRM systems that are pre-integrated to SalesFUSION. To facilitate sales calls, SalesFUSION now integrates with Citrix GoToMeeting. Prospects responding to any outbound or inbound marketing campaign can schedule a meeting through the new ScheduleMe tool; scheduled meetings then appear in the sales rep's dashboard within the CRM and their calendar tool.

Finally, the new SalesFUSION version 8.0 includes capabilities for multi-page conversion rate testing. Marketing managers can test a variety of content types including landing pages, forms and social posts to compare which assets drive the most traffic and conversions, thereby optimizing marketing spend.

"We believe marketing automation and CRM systems need to work together at a deeper level than they have in past," said Kevin Miller, Chief Marketing Officer at SalesFUSION. "Our 8.0 release brings marketing tasks such as nurture campaigns directly into the CRM, placing the right prospects in front of sales at the right time. Our users need to accurately track marketing spend and predict revenue trends, and we're excited to give more capabilities with the improved nurture marketing and analytics that come out of the box with SalesFUSION 8.0."

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when.

In this session, we will use customer use cases...

The IoT Will Grow: In what might be the most obvious prediction of the decade, the IoT will continue to expand next year, with more and more devices coming online every single day. What isn’t so obvious about this prediction: where that growth will occur. The retail, healthcare, and industrial/supply chain industries will likely see the greatest growth. Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
